After Storm Sandy, the builders and contractors are going to be out in force. Don't be a victim second time around. What can you do to protect yourself from the shysters?
DON'T part with any cash up front until the job is completed.
DO go with the contractor to buy the materials if you got a large bill coming.
DO check local listings of reputable guys.
DO use what agencies are available for advice on contractors.
DO BE CAREFUL WHO COMES INTO YOUR HOME
